Vietnam Filming Locations
Vietnam has some of the most amazing locations you can imagine! In the north, there is the historic city of Hanoi and the visually stunning islands of Ha Long Bay. Further to the south is the capital city of Ho Chi Minh and the sand dunes in the east. Different regions of Vietnam possess very different characteristics, giving filmmakers a variety of locations to choose from. These are some of the most diverse options you can find in a single country in Asia.
